Bluegrass Artist Sierra Hull in Concert April 12
Bluegrass recording artist Sierra Hull will perform in concert at the E. Glenn Giltz Auditorium, Hawkins Hall Sunday, April 12 beginning at 3 p.m.
Local bluegrass and country band Beartracks will perform as well.
Hull released her first album on Rounder Records at 15.
“I was just starting to figure out what I wanted to do and who I was as an artist,” she said. “Of course, finding yourself as an artist is a never-ending growing experience, but when you start that young, it’s almost like people thinking they have you figured out, when you don’t even have yourself figured out. The difference from 15 to where I am now, at 23, is quite enormous as far as musical maturity and vision. It takes a little bit of time for people to see you as an adult, a mature artist.”
Beartracks started as a trio in 2004 featuring cousins Tom Venne, Julie Venne Hogan and legendary dobro player, Junior Barber. Banjo player Scott Hopkins joined the group in 2012. With Barber’s retirement in 2013, fiddler Harry Ralph joined the band.
The concert is in produced as part of SUNY Plattsburgh’s “Bluegrass for the Next Generation” program. Tickets are $3 for students, $20 adults and free for children under 12.
